Question about Kenmore Freezer 20.3 cu. ft. Frost Free Upright Freezer
I know you are not supposed to store a freezer on its side, but it happened. Of course now the freezer will not freeze. Is there any solution?
There is always a solution, some are just more expensive than others.
First you need to figure out if the problem has to do with the refrigerant system or something else.
You want to verify the compressor is running. You can tell this by listening to it or placing your hand on it.
Make sure the fan inside the freezer is running. It is common for the fan motor to stick when not in use due to moisture in the cabinet. You can usually get it started with your finger and it will be ok after it runs a while.
If the fan and compressor are running but it won't get cold, you probably have oil in the lines from it being on it's side.
Turn the freezer off and let it sit for a minimum of 48 hrs.
If it won't cool after that, you will have to have a refrigeration tech out to check the system. You can probably buy a new freezer as cheap as having the system repaired.
Post back and let me know what you find out.
